What is the difference between my personal account and my GT Dropbox account? Can I Have Both?

This FAQ was last modified on: Wednesday, November 15, 2017 03:27pm

With GT Dropbox, you can connect another Personal Dropbox account (an account that uses a personal, non-GT email address).  This makes it easy to drag and drop between the two accounts.  

You can keep your Personal Dropbox account when you request a GT Dropbox account.  There may, however, be some considerations depending on what email address you are currently using for your Personal Dropbox account.  Please pay close attention to the instructions in the Sign-Up process for a GT Dropbox account.

Once you have a GT Dropbox account, log into your account and click on "GaTech" in the bottom left-hand corner.  Then, click on Add personal Dropbox.  

If you don't already have a personal Dropbox account, you'll be prompted to create one.  If you do, click the Sign in link and sign into your account.  

Note on leaving Georgia Tech:  When you leave GT, your GT Dropbox account will be removed.  You should copy over any personal files to a personal Dropbox account before your GT Dropbox account is removed.
